Perera was sent home from New Zealand tour after he failed a doping Test.
Dubai: The International Cricket Council on Wednesday confirmed that Sri Lanka batsman Kusal Perera has been charged for an anti-doping rule violation under the ICC Anti-Doping Code.
The sample Perera provided in an out-of-competition test, which was conducted on 12 October 2015, was found to contain the presence of a Prohibited Substance (in the category of non-Specified Substances), and, as required under the ICC Anti-Doping Code, he has been provisionally suspended.
